Well, its Rihanna Day!! Can you guess the excitement I went into when I got an email stating ‘ANTI Is Here’?! For those of you who don’t know, Rihanna spent the last couple of months carefully preparing her eighth studio album.  ANTI is finally available for everyone to stream and download (with a TIDAL account, packaged with a free 60 day trial for new users).

After releasing the official single “Work” featuring Drake yesterday, ANTI was reportedly leaked on Tidal so Rihanna went ahead and made the album available as a free download today. BUT, although the album is free, it was also complimentary since download codes were a “limited supply” so now you’ll have to “purchase the album via the Tidal download store.

It’s been 1,053 days since 2012’s Unapologetic and rumors of a November 2014 release date came and went. Though the campaign for Anti has included three semi-successful and sonically disparate singles a new perfume, her own line of Puma trainers, an animated film (plus soundtrack), various high-end ad campaigns, her own range of socks and 12 magazine covers.

I’m sure many fans were wondering if that is what the rest of the album would sound like. Well now you can see for yourselves.

For starters, I have to admit that I feel gypped, just like the ‘Talk That Talk‘ album, with there being a few songs under 3 minutes, is this the new fad for Rihanna?!
